Brazil opens two new markets for egg exports
Brazilian egg producers can now export eggs to two South American markets: Argentina and Chile, according to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA). Both International Health Certificates (CSI’s) were issued last week allowing Brazil to ship fresh eggs to these markets.
The CSI’s were published by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, and are valid for all states, in the case of Argentina; and for all establishments located in Rio Grande do Sul, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Paraná, Santa Catarina and São Paulo, in the case of Chile.
Brazilian egg exports from Brazil have obtained good results in 2021. In the first two months, the sector accumulated an increase of more than 150%, an index that should be maintained with the results of March, according to preliminary data calculated by ABPA. With the opening of Argentina and Chile - markets that are geographically closer than the current main destination in the sector, the United Arab Emirates - there are good expectations for an even greater increase in sales in the sector.
“The proximity of the markets are facilitators for the sector's sales. Brazil has consolidated itself as a major producer and now seeks new frontiers for sales of eggs produced in the country. With these two markets made possible yesterday, there are good expectations for business expansion ”, says Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA.
